(photos, illustrations, etc.). The system lets you play JPEG
format still-image files.
File formats that are not compatible.
• Still images in formats other than JPEG (such as TIFF)
cannot be played.
• There may be some files that cannot be played even if they
are in JPEG format.
• Progressive JPEG files cannot be played.
• Moving image files as well as Motion JPEG format files
cannot be played, even though they are JPEG files.
Other files that cannot be played back.
The following files cannot be played on this
system.
• When both Audio CD [CD-DA] format and JPEG/MP3 file
formats are recorded on a disc. (The disc is recognized to
be an Audio CD [CD-DA] only tracks in Audio CD [CD-DA]
format are played back.)
• Multi-session discs cannot be played.
About files/folders for Still images
(JPEG files) and audio data (MP3 files)
You can play still images (JPEG files) /audio data (MP3 files)
with this unit by making folder(s) on discs or USB memory
devices as shown below.
Example of a folder structure:
Root
001.jpg/001.mp3
xxx.jpg/xxx.mp3

01 Folder
• You may not be able to play some still images which you
have created, touched up, copied or otherwise edited on
your computer.
• You may not be able to play some still images you have
processed (rotated or saved by overwriting other images
you have imported from the Internet or e-mail).
You may experience one or more of the following
symptoms when playing files.
• It may take some time to play files depending on the
number of folders, number of files and volume of data
involved.
• EXIF information will not be displayed. EXIF stands for
Exchangeable Image File Format, and is a standard for
storing interchange information in image files, especially
those using JPEG compression. (Refer to http://exif.org for
more information.)
*3
About the MP3 file format
MP3 files are audio data compressed in the MPEG1/2 Audio
layer-3 file format. “MP3 files” have “.mp3” as extensions.
(Some files that have “.mp3” extensions or files that have not
been recorded in MP3 format will produce noise or cannot be
played.)
Playing the MP3 file format
• The MP3 files are not played in the order they were
recorded.
• It is recommended to record data at a lower speed as data
recorded at a fast speed can produce noise and may not
be able to be played.
• The more folders there are, the longer the reading time.
• Depending on the folder tree, reading MP3 files can take
time.
• The playing time may not be correctly displayed during
MP3 file playback.

DTS
BD Video
Linear PCM
DTS is a digital sound system developed by DTS, Inc. for
use in cinemas.
Enjoy BD-specific functions including BONUSVIEW (BD-ROM
Profile 1 Version 1.1), such as picture-in-picture, and BD-LIVE
(pages 47 and 48).
For the BD video discs compatible with BONUSVIEW/BDLIVE, you can enjoy additional contents by copying the data
from the discs or downloading it via the internet. For instance,
this function is capable of playing the original movie as the
primary video while playing video commentary from the film
director on a small screen as a secondary video.
NOTE
Linear PCM is a signal recording format used for Audio
CDs and on some DVD and Blu-ray discs. The sound
on Audio CDs is recorded at 44.1 kHz with 16 bits.
(Sound is recorded between 48 kHz with 16 bits and 96
kHz with 24 bits on DVD video discs and between 48
kHz with 16 bits and 192 kHz with 24 bits on BD video
discs.)

Camera angle
This indicates the kind of subtitles.
Movies are shot in a variety of screen modes.
Recorded onto some BD/DVD discs are scenes which
have been simultaneously shot from a number of
different angles (the same scene is shot from the front,
from the left side, from the right side, etc.).
Title, Chapter and Track
• Blu-ray discs and DVDs are divided into “Titles” and
“Chapters”. If the disc has more than one movie on it, each
movie would be a separate “Title”. “Chapters”, on the other
hand, are subdivisions of titles. (See Example 1.)
• Audio CDs are divided into “Tracks”. You can think of a
“Track” as one tune on an Audio CD. (See Example 2.)

Important Information
Disc Precautions
Be Careful of Scratches and Dust
• BD, DVD and CD discs are sensitive to dust, fingerprints
and especially scratches. A scratched disc may not be able
to be played back. Handle discs with care and store them
in a safe place.
Proper Disc Storage
Place the disc in the center of the
disc case and store the case and
disc upright.
Avoid storing discs in locations
subject to direct sunlight, close to
heating appliances or in locations
of high humidity.
Do not drop discs or subject them
to strong vibrations or impacts.
Avoid storing discs in locations
where there are large amounts of
dust or moisture.
Handling Precautions
• If the surface is soiled, wipe gently with a soft, damp (water
only) cloth. When wiping discs, always move the cloth from
the center hole toward the outer edge.
• Do not use record cleaning sprays, benzene, thinner, static
electricity prevention liquids or any other solvent.
• Do not touch the surface.
• Do not stick paper or adhesive labels to the disc.
• If the playing surface of a disc is soiled or scratched, the
system may decide that the disc is incompatible and eject
the disc tray, or it may fail to play the disc correctly. Wipe
any dirt off the playing surface with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the Pick Up Lens
• Never use commercially available cleaning discs. The use
of these discs can damage the lens.
• Request the nearest service center approved by SHARP to
clean the lens.

Positioning the Speaker System
Placing the Speaker System
To ensure optimal sound, it is recommended that you set up the speaker system as shown below.
Sound Bar speaker

Installation image
Subwoofer
Default setting:
10 feet
Surround
speaker (left)
Surround
speaker (right)
Default setting:
8 feet
NOTE
• The default distance is set to 10 feet for the Sound Bar speaker (Front L/R and Center speakers) and 8 feet for the Surround
speakers. If you cannot position the speakers at the default distance, adjust the speaker balance by using “Speaker Settings”.
(Pages 39-40)
Important points on speaker location
•
•
•
•
•
Place the Sound Bar speaker at the position just in front of near the television.
Place the surround speakers at a position just above the height of your ears.
The subwoofer vibrates while reproducing bass. Place it on a stable, sturdy surface.
The subwoofer reproduces only lower frequency bass tones.
Since the human ear cannot identify the direction of low bass tones, the subwoofer can usually be placed freely in the room
for the best sound result.
• Bass sound is easily affected by the position of the subwoofer. If the bass tones in the listening position seem much too low
or too high, try changing your listening position. If the bass tone level changes when you change the listening position, try
relocating the subwoofer.
TV
Sound Bar speaker
Magnetically shielded speakers
The Sound Bar speaker (left/center/right) may be placed near the TV as it is magnetically shielded. However,
depending on your TV (cathode ray tube), color variation may occur on the TV screen.
If color variation occurs...
Turn off the TV (from the power switch).
After 15 - 30 minutes, turn the TV on again.
If the color variation is still present...
Move the speakers further away from the TV.
If a magnet or other magnetic source is positioned near the TV, the combined magnetic field with that of the
speakers may cause color variation to occur on the TV screen.
NOTE
• The surround speakers and subwoofer are not magnetically shielded.
• If the color variation is still present, you may need to have your TV inspected.

•
Be very careful to prevent the speaker from falling when mounting on the wall.
Before mounting, check the wall strength. (Do not put on the veneer plaster or whitewashed wall. The speakers may fall.)
If unsure, consult a qualified service technician.
Mounting screws are not supplied. Use appropriate ones.
Check all mounting screws for looseness and that they are engaged in the speakers.
Mount the speakers on the wall using 2 screws each position.
Select a good location. If not, accidents may occur or the speaker may get damaged.
Avoid placing on a bed, sofa, water tank, sink and hallway wall.
To avoid accidents, fix the speaker wires to the wall. You may trip over them.
SHARP is not responsible for accidents resulting from improper installation.
The following may cause personal injury or speaker damage.
- Applying any other load to the fittings than the speaker.

Enjoying Multi-Channel Mode
Audyssey Technology
Audyssey EQ®
When playing back Dolby Digital, DTS or other multichannel audio signals, the system automatically selects
the optimal decoder for the signal format and plays
back the multi-channel audio signal.
This system is equipped with Dolby Pro Logic .
The Dolby Pro Logic function converts 2-channel
sound to 5.1-channel surround sound for more a
natural sound experience.
Press MULTI to change the multi-channel mode.
Pressing MULTI changes the mode as follows.
MULTI ON
MULTI OFF
MULTI ON: Plays back sound in 5.1-channel
surround sound for a more realistic
sound experience.
• When MULTI ON is selected,
“
” is displayed for 3
seconds on the front panel display.
• When Dolby Pro Logic operates, the
indicator lights.
Audyssey EQ is based on the same core technology as
Audyssey MultEQ that is used for automatic correction of
room acoustics. Audyssey EQ uses time-domain filters
to correct problems that arise from speaker drivers and
enclosures and is calibrated to account for the acoustical
problems in a typical listening environment.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ®
Audyssey Dynamic EQ solves the problem of deteriorating
sound quality as volume is decreased by taking into account
human perception and room acoustics. Audyssey Dynamic
EQ works in tandem with Audyssey EQ to provide wellbalanced sound for every listener at any volume level.
Audyssey Dynamic VolumeTM
Audyssey Dynamic Volume solves the problem of large
variations in volume level between television programs,
commercials, and between the soft and loud passages of
movies. Audyssey Dynamic EQ is integrated into Dynamic
Volume so that as the playback volume is adjusted
automatically, the perceived bass response, tonal balance,
surround impression and dialog clarity remain the same.
Audyssey BassXTTM
Audyssey BassXT enables low frequency drivers to produce
deeper bass by intelligently monitoring incoming audio signals
and extending driver performance to its maximum safe limits
at all volume levels. This enables the system to produce lower
frequencies than would be possible with a traditional system
of the same size.
MULTI OFF: Plays back original channel sound.
• When MULTI OFF is selected,
“
” is displayed for 3
seconds on the front panel display.
Playing back a two-channel audio source
Stereo sound is played back from the Sound bar
speaker (left/right).
Sound is also played back from the subwoofer.
NOTE
• With 5.1ch input, the sound cannot be played back in
stereo sound.
With 7.1ch input, the playback sound will be down-mixed
to 5.1ch in both “MULTI ON” and “MULTI OFF”.
